Mrs. Alice was a dear friend of my family. I cherish all the wonderful memories of this sweet lady. She always had a smile on her face and love in her heart. I pray for peace and comfort for her family.

Greg and Lucien, I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I don't know what my first memory is of her, but I know that it is from a very early age. I remember my mother talking about plans for a luncheon or a club meeting and always, your mother Alice was named and considered as a good friend. I remember trying to call my mother and the phone would be busy. Later she would tell me,"Oh, yes, I was talking to Alice about our meeting." I hope you both know that she was loved and that she will be remembered. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Lucien, Greg - saddened to read of your mother's passing (Marlo Bush forwarded her obit). As you know she was my mother's sole surviving cousin from the Brewer side and member of my parents' wedding party some 73 years ago. On behalf of my brother, Bill and myself please accept our condolences on your loss as we know what an important part of your lives she has been.

All the best .... Jim (Randy) Van Wagner
